The Academy is governed by a distinguished group of eminent scientists who have been appointed Fellows of the California Academy of Sciences in recognition of their notable contributions to one or more of the natural sciences. Nominated by their colleagues and appointed by the Board of Trustees, the Fellows remain members of the Fellowship for life.

The Academy’s highest honor is that of the Fellows Medal. Since 1964 the medal has been awarded to especially prominent scientists who have been recognized for their outstanding contributions to their specific field(s) of science. Note, no medal was awarded in 1972.
